Is it true that people have sex at younger ages today than in previous generations?
The short answer is no. The rates and ages that young people are having sex have stayed relatively the same over the past few decades. It is, however, a common misbelief that teens have become more sexually active earlier on in life.
So why does this misconception still exist?
One reason could be because technology has allowed young people to better learn and communicate about sex and sex positivity. So it may seem like there are more/younger teens having sex, but in reality it’s just the conversation that has become open to younger folks!
